. i would see a press corps, especially from the united states which had really not very much experience to draw on, most of that world war ii cohort, like ernie pyle, john hersey, edward r. murrow, martha kilbourne, a lot of these folks had very little experience as war correspondent. some of them had experience as a journalist, but very few of them had been covering world war i. and so for them it was all new. and i was really, really impressed with the quality and the beauty indeed of some the things they wrote. ernie pyle, you know, jimmy had always been kind of a cartoon character. you know, the journalist in the foxhole. but some of the things he wrote were choose, i would love to share. >> that would be great spent see if i can put my finger on it passage here that i think really evokes his finest work. and it was the kind of thing he wrote that cat people, let's see, in the service at that time. some of the soldiers would send letters back home to the family and say i'm not going to bother sending you any more letters. if you really want to know what the war is like yo

such a concerted series of vicious personal attacks directed against any president of the united states. completely funded in this case and a pair of brothers, big oil barons with the assistance of an all too compliant american media and you add those three elements together and you get the obama machine. i would just like to say a little bit about each of those elements and then open it up for questions until c-span tells us that the cameras are turned off. and, you know, let's start with a hate directed against obama. first of all, i have to say, i think criticism of any american president is fair game. i am part of the white house press corps. i go to the white house every day. i would have been there today if i wasn't here. every day in front of the white house on pennsylvania avenue there is a crowd of people protesting something. and i love that. i really do. i make a point of checking and what they are there for what the issue of the days. a very healthy part of our democracy. and criticism of the president, of course, has been around for a long time. the of this presidential campaign in his

, president of the united states, he'll lay out the vision for the next four years. i do think it's worth reminding people which i tried to do in my speech and others did, what has the country inherited. we're not out of the woods but not the global recession, deepest since the great recession, an auto industry about to collapse, the auto industry out and thriving. we had new numbers out in august showing again sales are up. on that clear choice mitt romney said i think he should go bankrupt. the president said not on my watch. clear difference. if we had followed mitt romney's strategy we would have lost those manufacturing jobs and ohio would have a lower unemployment rate. >> the president was recently asked to grade himself on the economy, his answer was incomplete, something he has said time to time over his four-year term. the voters gave him four years and the four years are about up. is it sufficient to say it's incomplete. >> i think his reflection, i think would be a true statement, until the middle class feel like their economic security is where it should be, the president sho
